It’s great to see a post disaster assessment done by an outside entity. On July 26-3oth, UN-HABITAT conducted a survey assessing the ‘alleged evictions’ in New Orleans post disaster reconstruction. According to UN-HABITAT’S news, the findings are reported to the Executive Director of UN-HABITAT which “address unlawful forced evictions and promot[e] alternative solutions. UN-HABITAT’S ultimate goal is to meet with Federal officials in DC who work with post disaster recovery.” Whether we take the advise, this is a great opportunity for a lesson’s learned with the insight from a socially responsible organization; one I think we can all learn from. I’ll make sure and post the findings once available.
